“The United States Supreme Court has determined that the case or controversy requirement found in Article Three of the United States Constitution prohibits United States federal courts from issuing advisory opinions. Accordingly, before the court will hear a case, it must find that the parties have a tangible interest at stake in the matter, the issue presented must be “mature for judicial resolution” or ripe, and a justiciable issue must remain before the court throughout the course of the lawsuit.”
>> And among equal branches of government, SC Justices are free to give remarks on matters not formally before the Court. <<
Not exaaaaaaactly. They can comment on judicial philosophy or news or whether the Redskins will ever make it to the playoffs, but they will not comment on matters that are plausibly about to be before the court, either. This would seem likely to be among such matters.
Not going to happen. They aren't here for intellectual honesty, they are here for GOPe and its globalist masters. If Sessions becomes unassailable they may concentrate their 'concern' on Trump himself, or just slink away. I encourage the slinking option, personally.
1.Notification that he's about to unrecuse
2.Why he believes he's allowed to unrecuse
3.Asking them for their opinions and feedback
They gave him the all clear.
TOTAL BS!. Supreme Court justices DO NOT give advisory opinions to members of the executive branch. Now that Q is senior in high school, one would hope that he has basic knowledge of civics and the U.S. Constitution. Apparently, he (she/they) does not.
Who or what is Q? The only things I’ve seen from him/her or it is akin to “Drink your Ovaltine today.”
But it’s federal jurisdiction which extends to anywhere in any federal bldg in the country. If you’d been paying attention you would know Huber has had a seated grand jury in the federal courthouse in Salt Lake City. Of course only those of us who do not really on the lying media for data would know this. Moron. Get ready to eat crow.
I have a different conspiracy theory.
When Huber, an Obama appointee, resigned and then was re-appointed the next day by properly elected Natural Born Citizen POTUS Trump, It raised a red flag that the Presidency, and actions, of the Obama years may be illegitimate.
I think Trump has information that BHO is not and has never been a citizen of the USA.
That is why Session is going to the Supreme Court. He is asking/telling Kagan and Sotomayor that their appointment to the SCOTUS may be illegitimate and that they need to recuse themselves.
The 6th Amendment this misinformed misguided plebe quotes ignores the fact that Huber can convene a grand jury in any part of the country to satisfy the constitutionality of any criminal case referred.
As Huber is now especially assigned to work with the DOJ Inspector General’s office and the 470 attorneys of that office, a convening of a grand jury in any US jurisdiction is a task unimpeded by law.
Presumably, the letter’s content did not reference any matter before the court or possibly in the future regarding un-recusal as court approval is not necessary in that context. The educated guess is that the letter notified of a case where original jurisdiction was warranted.
For all we know, the letter may have been a notification of the AG’s intention to file for trials of foreign agents.
As for Sessions un-recusal, no SCOTUS involvement is necessary other than a courtesy notification of intent to pursue matters previously recused from.
The White House as an equal branch of federal government can go directly to SCOTUS bypassing all lower courts in matters it deems important and constitutional. Presumably, therefore, the AG’s letter was a notification that the AG would file a direct Petition for Certiorari in cases of original and exclusive jurisdiction. Two justices would review and approve or disapprove of such cases going forward.
Art. 3, Sec. 2
“In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the Supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the Supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make.”
One guess is that the mentioned letter of Sessions described an intent to prosecute foreign actors such as Steele, Mifsud, Halper, Downer, Johnson, others that were engaged in a plot of overthrow the duly elected President.
The mentioned letter mentions it was classified in terms of recusal-unrecusal and presumably sought clarity in matters of conflicts based on declassified materials.
There is absolutely no restriction whatsoever for a cabinet head to seek clarity from SCOTUS over potential matters of original and exclusive jurisdiction.
Holding my cards. My bet is that this is BS, big time.
Lol. I wish I could understand it as I have a lot of time on my hands these days and love conspiracies!
Seems reasonable to characterize what they’re doing and what they’ve already done as slinking.
I agree with you.
My wife baked a cake when Teddy K died.
She baked a cake when Trump won.
She baked a cake when McTurd croaked.
I feel a new cake comin’ on.
We agree on that too.
If Trump ran things like he has to this point to draw out deep state folks so he could whack them, he will have demonstrated himself to be a sheer genius.
If we can hang on and pick up a lot of new seats in the mid-terms, Trump will have carte blanche to prune the federal agencies of all the saboteurs.
He may not get them all at that time, but it will do enough damage that it will set them back decades.
Then he can put his own people in places of power, and they will help clean up even more.
This guy is no fool, and it only remains to be seen how much of a true genius he is.
I agree. Enjoy the cake.
